The first meeting for 2009 had a strong focus on the global financial crisis and ways in which economies could mitigate its effects.

Second ABAC Meeting

ABAC’s second meeting for 2009 was held in Bandar Seri Begawan, the Brunei on 11-15 May 2009 against the background of the H1N1 virus and the ongoing economic crisis. The latter was much on everyone’s mind as it had been at the meeting in Wellington last February. Much discussion at the meeting itself, as at the APEC SME Summit which preceded it, was focused on whether the bottom to the crisis had finally been reached.
